Zo! Style Technician – April 13, 2008

The muses of fashion sing again as we enter spring here in Angel City. To celebrate the turning of the tides agent Yoon and I had ourselves a little roadside picnic near the ever-fragrant LA River.

For this momentous occasion I picked a simple knit dress, thumb leggings and high heels with steel-plated toes – a sensible choice should one need to escape the local packs of roaming hobos on foot. In daylight hours these [equally fragrant] folks keep to dark shelters under bridges, sale with only glowing eyes indicating their whereabouts. Still, treat one can never be too careful when choosing footwear.

Eyes: my usual cobalt eyebrows in a Ben Nye shadow, a hint of drugstore iridescent green shadow on the eyelids to echo the shoes, liquid liner, Urban Decay “Heavy Metal” glitter highlights
Skin: Pür mineral powder
Lips: Nyx coral lip gloss
Nails: NYC enamel in Times Square Tangerine Creme
Dress: Final Touch $30 at Angel on Melrose Ave
Leggings: H&M
Bag: shop near Asakuza Temple, Tokyo
Gloves: Harajuku, Tokyo
Shoes: Naughty Monkey $30 on Amazon

    […] I’m back! In full effect, even. Only on Coilhouse. […]

  2. Adarael Says:

    As I have said before and will probably say again, I wish more people in this world posessed a mere modicum of your sense of style.

  3. Saba. Says:

    Excellent choices on this outfit. Great photography; the graffiti works well in contrast with the look.

  4. paul blume Says:

    Full agreement with Adarael.

  5. paul blume Says:

    …and saba.

  6. Alice Says:

    Oh, look, look, make-up! Huzzah indeed! I adore the leggings-with-heels look and whole-heartedly agree with Adarael–if people put more energy into looking this lovely, the world would probably be a much better place.

    Is this going to be a regular sunday installment, like WZW, or more spur of the moment?

    Either way, whoo hoo! (Again…)

  9. geraldine Says:

    Yay!! I missed What’s Zo Wearing! But I love the new title even more! You have the BEST style; it’s uber inspiring. And Andrew Yoon’s photography rocks. You guys are an awesome team. <3

  10. Nina Says:

    Aaaaaaaaaaaaw!!! So great to see you back!

  11. Zoetica Says:

    Thank you all so much for the warm welcome back to the column. This will be most likely bi-weekly with other shenanigans in between, as time allows.

  12. Drew Yoon Says:

    Thank you Saba, Geraldine, and everyone else!
    Likewise, both Zoe and I have missed doing these.

  13. brem Says:

    As always, you look awesome. Nice photography.

  14. Tequila Says:

    Ah, a return to the creative fun of Zo’s endless wardrobe. Though the backdrops are equally as entertaining.

    Again though…the shoes. For a guy without a shoe fetish you certainly make an excellent argument to acquire one.

    To Mr. Yoon….excellent images as always. I hope a book comes out of all of these shoots one day.

  15. traumata Says:

    I actually had a dream about those shoes last night. So wrong. But they are all kinds of awesome.

  16. Zoetica Says:

    Yes, the infiltration of the mind has begun.

  17. Lolla Says:

    what can I say to this blue, grey and black hotness?! only that I want those shoes? ;)

  18. Vivacious G Says:

    Beautiful! Also, I lLOVE the location.

  19. biorequiem:Zoetica Ebb » shoot with kk+ at Cafe Muse Says:

    […] – on Friday we managed to sneak a mini-shoot at a nearby café, possibly for a new edition of Zo! Style Techinican. Can’t wait to see the rest, especially considering he shot mostly […]

  20. ladyluxe Says:

    this might be a little late but what brand of hair dye is that?… it’s freaking awesome….

  21. Zoetica Says:

    @Ladyluxe – I use Special Effects brand – Blue Velvet, often mixed with other shades of blue.

  22. künstlich Says:

    I like how the ben nye shadow shows up as eyebrows, I’m assuming u apply it wet.. anyway, what shade is it called?

  23. miss o Says:

    you are always able to pull off styles that most people make look so ridiculous.
    an enigma
